This exhibition will feature the work of important Northwest women artists active in the early to mid-20th century. Rarely seen today, many of these artists were an integral part of the region’s nascent cultural development.

Featured artists include Louise Crow (1891-1968), Doris Totten Chase (1923-2008), Margaret Tomkins (1916 – 2002) and several mural studies by Tillamook, Oregon artist Lucia Wiley (1906-1998) created for the Federal Art Projects of the 1930’s.

This exhibition will also introduce the work of Roselyn Buck Pape (1925-2020) and Elsa Thoresen (1906-1994) a leading figure in European Surrealism who settled in Seattle after WWII.

Several works will represent recent gifts to Cascadia Art Museum’s permanent collection as well as loans from family and private collections.

Cascadia Art Museum is located at 190 Sunset Ave. S., Edmonds. Information: 425-336-4809 or
